Park Cottage

Baslow Derbyshire DE45 1PN 01246 565 300

We say

This delightful Grade II-listed 17th-century thatched cottage, originally a estate labourer's home, has been stylishly refurbished by the Duchess of Devonshire. As you'd expect from a property on the Chatsworth estate, it's had a top-quality finish, with everything you'd ever need in a spanking-new kitchen, and a charming sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and wood-bruning stove (fuel gratis). There's a single room with a three-quarter bed on the ground floor, and upstairs a fabulous double bedroom with exposed cruck beams and an extraordinary bedstead made from rhododendron branches. Set on the edge of neighbouring village Baslow, the cottage also has private access to the Chatsworth Park and its own private walled garden; you're free to walk at any time (with your canine chum on a lead) through the 1100 acres of the stunning park. Embrace your inner Duchess!
